We had lunch at havercroft. Warm, friendly atmosphere. Innes and Brydon were welcoming and kind. We loved our lunch. The duck liver pate was superb, frikadels wrapped in cabbage was amazing. Loved the vanilla fudge ice cream. Will be back on our next visit.

This was our third visit and from the moment you walk into the restaurant, one feels at home and Innes and her waiters are just fantastic. To describe the food would not justify what our taste buds experienced...so in one word: Unbelievable!!!! thank you for a memorable day and we are already planning the next visit!!!

Quirky but wonderful! Small menu but good choice. Wonderfully entertaining with people who know their way around what good food is all about. Innes provides wonderful entertainment backed up by a superb knowledge of local food and wine. The food is based on local produce but also provides a flair of international cuisine. So worth a visit. You must put... More

Excellent food and service at Havercrofts again. I had the Summer Salad and a pasta with artichokes in lemon cream. Both were excellent. A lunch here is a must do treat if you are staying in or around Stanford. Very highly recommended.

Let's start this review by saying that Havercrofts placed us in the very uncomfortable dilema this holiday. Not by bad service or food, but rather by kicking personal favorites. We always refer to our global top 5 restaurants over the globe and have to admit that one of our top 5's dropped down to number 6 ("uncomfortable") this holiday. Innes,... More

Any trip to the Hermanus/Stanford area is only complete once you have eaten at Havercrofts. Brydon's cooking is outstanding - we were a party of 14 and every dish was absolutely delicious. Innes is always a warm and interesting front of house who complements this lovely restaurant. I love the fact that they only accommodate a small number - about... More

Food, service, wine and ambiance top class! The meal was outstanding from the legendary deviled kidneys right the way through to the homemade ice cream. Thanks Innes and Brydon for your warm hospitality .... a meal at Havercrofts is always a treat!

My wife Angie, and friend Roelien looked forward to eat at this favorite restaurant in Stanford and were not disappointed. The cuisine was novelle cuisine and very well prepared by Brydon. He with wife, Innes were great hosts and I can strongly recommend this restaurant to visitors to Stanford!

We were lucky enough to obtain a booking at this justifiably popular restaurant. Historic devilled kidneys (I'm not a fan of offal, but one of our party had to fend me off after I'd had a taste of his), fresh seasonal ingredients and a very welcoming, entertaining and witty front of house in Innes. I'm looking forward to my next... More

This restaurant blew our socks off. Each dish more delicious than the next.. I have NEVER tasted a fish curry so exquisite. Underplayed excellence - Innes describing her husband as a cook not a chef but we enjoyed this meal more than a few fine dining restaurants we have frequented. Engaging hosts - Innes is a barrel of laughs! Can't... More
